Dinner took at least 45 minutes to an hour to come to the table. Server never really checked on us the whole time. I ordered roasted chicken and could have cooked it myself way better. Just plain chicken with little or no creativity. Nice atmosphere, fun to sit outside.

A dear friend was in town and was able to book a table that night for us. I have experienced the one in Las Vegas and this one met my expectations. Outside service was as good if not better than inside. The meal was delightful, the wine was excellent. My friend is extremely picky and she was just as impressed... More

We have enjoyed Happy Hour at Mon Ami many times. They have adjusted their times starting at 3:00pm and ending at 6:30pm (Probably to adjust for Gov't Employees). We got there at 6:35 missed Happy hour so we ate at the restaurant. One of our favorite entrees was their version of "fish and chips". That item similar to their previous... More

Charming atmosphere, Great menu. Simply love their bread and butter :-) Almost as good as it suppose to be . Great location in downtown Bethesda . French onion soup is to die for . But some items on the menu are very Americanized . Don't like the service , always with attitude that's why not 5 stars

Went after couple of months to revive the taste of the wonderful crepes ... in for a sad surprise. The crepes came out 30 mins late and burnt - returned back to chef. The same crepe was delivered after 15 mins - cold. Service and quality has really gone down. Will probably not visit again.

Great place for dinner with outdoor seating in downtown Bethesda. I had gazpacho and sole meuniere; my wife had fois gras and sallad. Everything was very good, though I would have preferred the soup a little more chunky. The free starter bread and carrot mix topping is delicious. The waiters wee polite and efficient.

As a lover of most things French, I was delighted with the opening several years ago of this brasserie or bistro, I still don't know the difference. The localle is smartly decorated with the intention of transporting one to the heart of Paris, the service was and still is above average, the bar is small but cozy, and the martinis,... More

You can't go wrong with steak and tasty frites. Several options for sauces w/steak. Can sub out frites for a veggie. Caesar salad is a good starter. Mousse is a good finisher. Nice wine selection.

Always nice to find a dining experience that meets expectations and beyond while away on business. Mon Ami Gabi has a lovely fresh fish and steak menu and wonderful French wine options. Staff is knowledgable, helpful and attentive.
